Talk:UNIT 1


Evaluation from Susan -- Suem48 19:42, 21 April 2008 (EDT)


I would include learning outcomes/objectives for this unit. I would also include a reflection piece so that the learner can reflect on what is in Unit 1

Yes, adding a title to each unit is also necessary, so that learners can quickly understand how this course is organized. Several additional comments:

1) Try to background your course in a better way in your homepage. When you introduce your course, you should try to help learners build the connection: How is this topic related to what I know and what I care about? How is it placed in the general field? For example, you can say something like: Using technology to support inquiry learning is pursuit of current education reforms. WebQuest is a specific approach... This kind of sentence can help activate learners' schema needed to understand the new content.

2) Move some of the examples of WebQuests to the beginning of unit 1, so that learners can have something specific to link to and think about while reading your definition and analyses.

3) Try to elaborate each of your key points. Some of the bulletin lists are not easy to understand without further details.

4) Add a navigation link to your homepage.
